I know I said I'd take some pics but I had a small change in this step. I think I've decided to not do the AHC over ride. Originally I had planned on adjusting the AHC sensors to give a small lift. Just enough to drive on the street in N and not rub. Then I figured I'd use the over ride for off-road use. However when doing my adjustment on my AHC sensors I had to max out the front in order to get the gains I needed. The rear isn't maxed but that's not where I have clearance issues. So no I can't even go into Hi mode anymore anyway. So for me the over ride would be useless.Thanks! I'd really appreciate pictures!

Killer LX470! That rubber is huge! Why not just do the OME lift and be done?
Hey I meant to message you actually. I was looking through your build thread the other day and recognized some spots you want wheeling and found you are in NC. I'm in Wilmington but we do trips up to the mountains a lot to camp and just plain explore. Sometime knowing where we are going and sometimes not. I'm always looking for fellow North Carolinians to wheel with though.Looking good. My LX's younger twin.
I still love my AHC. I have not been easy on it by any means.
When I'm done with the system I'll let you know. It'll probably be a while though. I've heard a lot of good things about the cooper st maxx's recently. I have a few friends that just put them on their jeeps. They seem to like them a lot. I have always like the nittos or the toyo MTs style wise. I know they are a good tire too so that's why I went that route.Looks good man. I understand about the AHC stuff. If you don't want it anymore I'd be happy to take it off your hands
Btw...I really like those tires. I went and purchased a second set of wheels and plan on running some 285/75/16 KO2's that I've been using on my 80 just to save money for now. I'll eventually have off road tires for both. Right now I really like the Cooper ST MAXX'S and the ones you have on yours.

Interesting! Sounds like your up for a challenge. Good thing for FSM's and MUD then! Icon sound like a great lift. I sure loved my Icon coils on my Tacoma. Plus great customer service as well.Thank you!
Several reasons. I'm a geek when it comes to electronics so the AHC system in general intrigues me and I'm curious how far I can push it. I also like the idea of being able to raise and lower the suspension to suit my needs at any given time.
Another reason is I like the ability to change the ride based on conditions and or load of vehicle.
Lastly priority of funds/modifications. The suspension I have somewhat decided to swap this out with is the icon stage 2.5 I believe. This setup would give me the adjustable ride quality also which I like. This setup is expensive though, which is fine with me if that's all I needed to do to the vehicle but it's not.
So I've chosen to hold off on the suspension for now since this setup works and it's kinda fun to play with. I can get the other items installed that need to be done and then address the suspension at that point.
Not correct. I am out of town right now so I can get pics of the pinch seam but I had to trim the front bumper at the bottom corner. The tire was hitting the inner fender liner at the pinch seam and hit the pinch seam there too. I used a cut off wheel to score the pinch seam and then a hammer to fold it in ward. I scored it because I didn't want to cut it off completely and it's a pretty tough piece of metal. Then just used a razor blade to cut the inner fender only where the tire made contact. Then painted it all black. When I get home I'll take some pics. Since then I've had a chance to flex it out pretty good and it's not hitting anywhere.Just so I am clear, you are clearing those tires with no modifications other than the wheel spacers at this time. Correct?
